Developers are re-working plans for two Wal-Mart stores in the District on East Capitol Street and New York Avenue NE, The Washington Post reported.
On East Capitol Street, the D.C. Housing Authority and its partner, A&R Cos., submitted plans for a Wal-Mart-anchored project in August of last year, but have broadened the project. The new plans, submitted last week, call for a more modern design for the store, a gateway to the Metro station, a mixed-use building with 283 apartments and a 21,000-square-foot office building.
Changes are also in the works on New York Avenue NE, where a developer stumbled in trying to attract other retailers to join Wal-Mart but says he has regained his footing, according to the Post.
